Connecting attendees to peers and exhibitors pre-show, onsite and post-show

Alpharetta, GA (August 20, 2021) — CEDIA Expo 2021, the platform where residential technology integration, designers and construction professionals connect, learn, and engage, introduces “CEDIA Expo Connect”, the new digital companion to the in-person show, driven by state-of-the-art AI. “Connect” is a powerful platform designed to facilitate smart business matchmaking, product discovery and relevant content. It connects attendees to exhibiting brands and products pre-show, onsite and post-show.

“This new AI-driven matchmaking platform is a first for our industry, and it’s so powerful we decided to make it available to all registrants before CEDIA Expo opens,” shares Jason McGraw, Group VP of CEDIA Expo/KBIS. “Offering the latest technology to bring attendees together with exhibitors is a very exciting opportunity for all. This platform is set to revolutionize the way exhibitors and attendees interface.”

“CEDIA Expo Connect” provides smart matches, recommended for attendees based on self-described product interest. The platform additionally allows for chats and request meeting times/appointments onsite. Exhibiting brands and products are easily searched by keywords or by selecting a category from dropdown lists.

This new show service platform will also host CEDIA’s on-demand education sessions through attendees’ personalized agendas linked to the show’s registration system. A truly innovative experience for CEDIA Expo attendees.

Available on the CEDIA Expo mobile app, “CEDIA Expo Connect” allows for attendees to explore, match and meet on the go. The official CEDIA Expo mobile app also features the latest floorplan, exhibitor list and show schedule.
